The MLB brings more action on Friday evening as the Baltimore Orioles will rumble with the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida in game one of their three-game series. These two teams played six games against each other this season and each of them was able to secure three wins.
Baltimore Orioles Form
The Baltimore Orioles are not playing well this season. Their struggles continued as they lost 11-1 in the away game against the Chicago White Sox. However, they were able to bounce back in that series as they won the game on Thursday against the White Sox with a 9-3 score. They were the underdogs in that game and surely this win will give them some confidence going forward. Nevertheless, the general impression so far is that this will be a hard season for Baltimore. They are in a rebuilding process and that will surely have some effect on their performances. They have averaged 3.42 runs per game and has allowed 5.92 runs per game during their away games this season.
On the offensive side of the game, they are placed on the 26th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 3.92 runs per game, while also holding the 24th spot in hitting at .232 and 9th in homers with a total of 60 so far. On the mound, they have some poor stats this season as they are placed on the 29th spot in the league in ERA at 5.13, while also being placed on the 30th spot in WHIP at 1.54 and 24th in K’s with 387.
Tampa Bay Rays Form
The Tampa Bay Rays are experiencing a hard time when playing on the road this season. Their start of the season was not so good as they had problems with their offence. However, it seemed that they were able to improve on that part of the game. Yet, their recent results showed that they had a temporary flash of their form. The Rays head into this game after a win on Thursday against the Red Sox with a score of 6-3.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rays have some below average stats as they are placed on the 16th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 4.26 runs per game, while also ranking 3rd in hitting at .260 and 25th in homers with a total of 46 so far this season. On the mound, they have been poor so far as they come in on the 21st place in the league in ERA at 4.33, while also being on the 10th spot in WHIP at 1.25 and 25th in K’s with 384.
The Orioles are one of the worst teams in the league this season. Their away form is bad also as their record is 5-21 so far this season. On the other side, the Rays head into this game after an improved offensive form as they beat the Red Sox which is one of the best teams in the league this season. Go for the Rays in this one.
